Proof Technology COOL WOOD”

You give a few pot heads a bunch of weed and nothing to smoke out of and they suddenly become engineers. If you are unsure as to what product would be best for you then please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we would be more than happy to provide you with the information you need and to point you in the right direction of which timber and wood fire resistant paint would be best for you. There is, however, a set of NFPA stipulations which state that wood burning appliances can be safely placed closer to walls if an appropriate thermal barrier is protecting all combustible material. Insurance Standards: Many insurance companies have standards about how a wood stove heat shield needs to be installed.

It is recommended that a small sample of the wood be tested for uptake and penetration prior to application of the fire retardant. Both Wood Seal Retardant and Wood Seal-A Retardant may be over-coated with paint or stain once completely dried. Alternately, a few minutes exposure of the impregnated wood to carbon dioxide at a pressure of about 300 to about 800 p.s.i. produces sufficient polymerization.


These types of shield rest directly against the walls or floor, and have heavy insulation behind the fireproof exterior. Contains environmentally friendly components that assists the active flame retardant components to deeply penetrate the wood. Wood Seal-A (Class A) Fire Retardant is basically a more robust version of the Wood Seal Fire Retardants. If you would want to correctly fireproof the wood, you WILL need the proper chemicals.

Promain take safety seriously and we understand that fire risks are a very important thing to keep under control and that is why we make sure that we stock only the very best fire resistant paints and coatings that can be used on wood and timber to ensure a safe environment whether it is in the workplace, schools, hospitals or homes. Wood Seal Fire Retardant is a mild intumescent retardant but will not prevent fire damage to the substrate. Suitable for providing fire protection on softwood, hardwood and wood derivatives.

Recycling the hybrid wood is therefore harmless, unlike normal wood, which is treated with flame-retardant chemicals using conventional methods. The vacuum chamber is then filled with sufiicient solution to completely cover the wood samples and the vacuum is broken. If wood is coated with sodium silicate solution the wood will no longer support combustion even after it dries.

Flame Seal Wood Seal-A is a mix of proprietary ingredients, which forms a slight swelling foam layer and carbon char when the treated wood is exposed to fire. It was not until the wood was placed in immediate contact with the sweltering, orange-black coals, where the temperature was doubly hot, that it really picked up a flame. Paint or spray two to three coats of the mixture onto your wood to protect it from fire. FRT wood is used extensively in residential and commercial applications throughout the world.
